We have stayed at the Grand Floridian a number of times over the last few years. The staff is extremely helpful. The hotel is very comfortable. The food is excellent, and the grounds are beautiful. The Magic Kingdom is only one monorail stop away. HInt: take the boat back to the hote from the Magic Kingdom. The Grand Floridian is the first stop. Frequently, we leave the Magic Kingdom during the day, enjoy the amenities of the hotel, and then return to the park for the evening. Staying here is expensive, but it is worth it.
